Does your university have a partnership with the Université Catholique de Lille or the FGES and you would you like to come to study at our institution for a term or a one-year exchange? We would be delighted to welcome you!

There is no registration fee if you come to study at Université Catholique de Lille in the frame of an exchange programme.

Please find below all the information you require to apply and to help you have a great experience in our university.


As an exchange student, you may choose any course at our faculty, regardless of the field
or the academic year.

Courses are typically taught in French, but we also propose a large range of courses in English.

France, like all European Union member states, is using the ECTS grading system, the European Credit Transfer and Accumulation System. Credits are called ECTS credits.

Find more information in our Course Catalogue – Courses taught in English or consult our Grading Scale.


If you wish to study at the FGES, please contact your home university first. The international office of your home university can then contact us to proceed with your “nomination”. Following this, we will send you the application procedure and all the information you require directly by email.

For any further questions regarding nominations and applications, please contact your home university directly.
